Even Angels Eat Beans*

tonight I’m going to be cooking Spaghetti Pomodoro and watching a film from the Bud Spencer and Terence Hill collectors box, and seeing if they are as enjoyable to watch now as when I first saw them when I was about ten years old.

Incidentally the box set contains a different ten films to those listed on some websites, including the place I bought mine from, but for a little over a tenner I’ve no complaints. I was going to work my way through them in order but given the very Basic dutch packaging, that I can’t read, and the numerous AKA’s for each title I may just start with the first disk.

I shall report back…

*I should explain the post titles is one of the films American titles, also know as ‘Al Capone enantion trinita’, ‘Der Dicke in Amerika’, ‘2 angeloi tou samata’ and the original ‘Anche gli angeli mangiano fagioli’

Dirty Water Records presents…


  1. Spaghetti Pomodoro? Surely a tin of Sainsburys Spaghetti Hoops with a tin of corn beef mixed in would be better?

    You must have watched some right old crap at 10. What was wrong with watching repeats on BBC2? Now Abbot and Costello meet the Mummy there was a film……

  2. No I haven’t got anything else to do I’m ill…. and no I will not watch Jeramy Kyle. Good Grief! Where do all those Bianca’s and Ricky’s come from?!

  3. Bring out the lie detector, well, after the ad break. I can’t believe they’ve pulled my new favorite TV show, Trust Me I’m a Dealer, for some Saturday night voting programme overspill show. Daytime TV, No standards these days.

    Well, the food turned out well now you ask. using my own grown tomatoes;

    About week 24 I think. 99p well spent for sure.

    Its murder I tell you!

    Well, no one was giving prizes for presentation.

    The dogs we’re unimpressed with the lack of meat involved though and would probably have preferred your Spaghetti Hoops and Corned Beef – actually come to think of it thats pretty much what that tinned food looks like…

    As for the Films, the first two, which is all I’ve had chance to watch, only had one or the other in it, bit of a cheek really including them in the box set – though some of the impressive old fashioned production values and well rehearsed slapstick routines we’re very enjoyable and rang a few bells. As was the fact the soundtracks are mostly all by Guido & Maurizio De Angelis who did a few of the more far out spaghetti western soundtracks, including the great Keoma. More on this as things develop. As they used to say on the news before they just copied it all of the interweb…

  4. And when exactly did they do away with the Golden Gavel on Bargain Hunt?
